Summertime... and the living is..busy!

So I haven’t been here on the blog for a while. Not that I haven’t been busy, in fact I have been very busy!

First of all quilt-wise this is going on….. two secret projects. I can show you bits of them, the rest (and why they are secret for now) I will share when I can.
The first secret project


And the second one

Also of course summer arrived and with it lots of activities that go with it. Yes, there is time for this……..summer evenings on the beach….

It is wonderful to live in a town that has beaches!


But also terrace life in the city suits us just fine (with our without jackets, depending on our Dutch summer weather)



And yes, I do appreciate that glass of rosē when I am enjoying the sunshine and some nice food ;-)!

And there was this…. the Grand Depart of the Tour de France 2015 right in front of hubs office

It was very hot and a bit crazy at times, but a great party atmosphere in the town of Utrecht, for us also helped when we persuaded the band that was playing across the street to come and join us on our platform for a while


The end of the school year for Eline brings the usual whirlwind of activities: parties… sleepovers… hockey camp….school books returned….. a camping trip to Terschelling.



Which gives me time to work on those secret projects and (hopefully) meet the deadlines for these.

Sorry I cannot share more right now, but thought I’d stay in touch with this update anyway. Hope you are all enjoying a lovely summer so far.
